Isaac’s Buddies was created in celebration of Isaac, who was adopted from Ukraine in 2020 at the age of 10. Isaac was listed on Reece’s Rainbow for over 7 years before his family found him, thanks to an advocacy post on Facebook, and decided to commit to bringing him home. He went from being a bedridden, malnourished, withdrawn, stiff little boy to being a happy, thriving, and cherished son, brother, grandson, friend, and student. We know this is exactly what every child deserves, but this is something that hardly any children with profound special needs will get to experience. We hope to help change perceptions, to advocate for these kids who are at serious risk, and to be a support for families who need it.
This ministry was created specifically to help the absolute most vulnerable and overlooked children, and anyone trying to bring them home. Isaac’s Buddies will be fundraising via Reece’s Rainbow in order to provide matching grants to families who are adopting children with the most complex medical needs, with a special focus on older children. More information can be found at isaacsbuddies.org where homestudy approved families may apply for a matching grant.
A list of donors will be provided to the Isaac’s Buddies family. If you prefer your donation to remain anonymous, please contact Reece’s Rainbow. Thank you!
